Favorite bad guy that isn't Bowser
« on: November 24, 2018, 07:21:26 PM »
Title. And before you ask, no. Paper Bowser doesn't count.


I'm not sure if I should put K. Rool and Captain Syrup because they're more Wario and DK bad guys than Mario bad guys.


If I missed someone, tell me.

Kamek.  Antasma's close, though.

Fawful would be my answer even if the poll did include Bowser. Dimentio's a very close second.

I do like Fawful but I don't think he's even close to kicking Bowser's ass.

Does Waluigi count? If so, then him.

Kamek.

Though if we talk design, idk MAAAAYBE BoneChill cuts it, but sadly he was really underdevelopped, so eh.

I like Princess Shroob for her pure machine-like alien sociopathy.

King Boo is also pretty cool too.

Most of these are one time RPG villains that never appear outside of one game, so let's rule all of them of the list.

That leaves Wart and Tatanga who both are also one time villains so we can rule them off.

Fawful hasn't made an appearance outside of the Mario & Luigi franchise, but he's still a possibility (just not a very likely one).

Wario hasn't been an antagonist in enough games so I don't consider him a true villain.

That leaves King K. Rool who isn't on the list and I give up.

~ Fawful - I HAVE FURY, CHORTLES AND MUSTARD OF DOOOOOOOOM!

~ Antasma - He has a really cool design and boss theme, hope to see him in another Mario and Luigi title in the future.

~ Dimentio - Ah yes, The malevolent and flamboyant jester of the Court of Bleck. He's very cool.

~ Tatanga - Very underutilized villian IMO, kinda think he should've at the very least had a cameo in Partners in Time or the Galaxy games considering how unceremoniously he got demoted to regular boss status in Super Mario Land 2.

~ Wart - Much like Tatanga, I feel that it was a missed opportunity to not have him cameo or even appear as a secret boss in Dream Team. Could've drawn some interesting parallels between the Dream World and the Subcon.

(Edit: Also if we're counting villains from spin-off titles starring other characters in the Marioverse, then I also really like Count Cannoli from W:MoD. Shame we never got to fight him in his Silver Zephyr form...)

It pleases me to see so many kamek votes :wario: .

Wario

I mean he was only a bad guy in SML2 and then never again so idk.

Well he's the badguy of Wario's Woods and Mario & Wario.

So that's at least 3.

Plus a lot of these badguys are one offs anyhow.
